Cheers for that Michael, fun little exercise.

And well done to those who tried something more adventurousness and fun than mine.

Hey Bill! Our first ever winner on Writer Arena! I can't say I expected different, but congratulations to you nonetheless.

Thanks everyone for entering. This was actually an incredibly hard one to judge, IMO. It was a close call with my top three (The Chance, A timely Reminder and Thumbs Up).

Congrats to MainShane, Dave Troop and tailbest. Solid performance guys.

Congrats to Reefer for writing a whole page without killing off one of his characters!
I will give you a special Karma click for that, buddy.   :D

Good job everyone.

Pleased to see that everyone enjoyed this challenge.  I'm cooking up something special for the next one which I'll schedule for, say next Sunday (the 2nd), or is that too soon?  I thought that would be a good time because it will give people a chance to get over their MP scores and they won't yet be starting their next MP script.  It's not too taxing of a challenge, though it will most definitely be a challenge.

Dave - karma vote, wow. Never had one of those before.

 In fact, I am changed man, no more death and depression, loss of children etc  Once you are able to review my next MP script it will become clear.

Ok, I still like killing them off, in the most tortured way

Nice job on the win, Bill.

I actually thought you wrote Bin Your Butt, whoops! I'm terrible at guessing writers.

Also, Michael, yeah, he killed his father. I was trying to aim at something like this. :)

Hey all,

I came in a bit late with this one though did a read of them all anyway.

Bill, Well done. For one page it certainly felt like more of a story.

Also loved FeloBreeze and found it very witty. Well done Tailbest.

All where great.

So what was the brief for this one as I can't see anything posted ?? I assume a one page commercial on kicking a bad habbit ?
